Performing Silent Install of 11g agent on AIX


For performing silent install one needs to download agent setup from otn download page. Once you have it , you need to unzip the file. 

One also needs to prepare silent installation response file for this purpose as that file will be driving installation process. 


# cd /u01/oracle/stage/aix/response
# cp additional_agent.rsp /u01/oracle/stage/aix/agent
# cd /u01/oracle/stage/aix/agent

One needs to edit the file – additional_agent.rsp
-- Make the following changes

SECURITY_UPDATES_VIA_MYORACLESUPPORT=false
DECLINE_SECURITY_UPDATES=true
INSTALL_UPDATES_SELECTION=”skip”
ORACLE_AGENT_HOME_LOCATION=”/u01/oracle/”

b_silentInstall=true
OMS_HOST=”xxxxxx.xxxxxx.com” – The grid control oms server. OMS_PORT=”4889″
AGENT_REGISTRATION_PASSWORD=”xxxxxxx”
FROM_LOCATION=”/u01/oracle/stage/aix/agent/stage/products.xml”

# cd /u01/oracle/stage/aix/agent
# ./runInstaller -silent
-responseFile /u01/oracle/stage/aix/agent/additional_agent.rsp 
Starting Oracle Universal Installer…

 This will start the installation. Once done successfully , one needs to run root.sh and your agent is ready to work...
